Holy cow! I saw this poster on a friends college dorm room wall in the mid-seventies and have not seen it since. I've always wondered why I've never found it again, ie reproduced in a book, etc. ....
It was very striking at the time, as I'd never seen Jerry in pigtails and Phil's hat (which I remembered more as a straw hat) reminded me of the one worn by the scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz. Hence I always figured this was one of the those Iowa shows (5/73 or 6/74), as it was obviously an outdoor gig and scarecrows summon up visions certainly of more rural environments than DC!
Thanks so much for posting it. So good to run into this old friend again after so long.
